Default tire talk

ok, time to start talking tires... the ones that came on my care have plenty of tred depth, and judging from the traction they provide will continue to have such for years to come...

my grandmothers car ('95 Acura Legend) has Michlin MXV4+'* on it and they are great tires if a bit expensive... ($125 a tire)

anyone have any other suggestions? any pricerange is good, i just want something with great grip, and somewhere around a 40,000 mile warrenty. let me know of anything related to ride and road noise.

Michelin Pilot XGTZ4'* on the back (Speed rating Z), Michelin Energy MXV4+ on the front (Speed rating V).


Both great tires. The Energys are a little more quiet. Both stick to the road well.

They weren't cheap - I got them at NTB. I think they were in the vicinity of $130 apiece.

Goodyear Eagle HP. H rated, nifty directional tread. I have these and love 'em, give good grip.
